Fed up!

I purchased the 275/55/20 about a month ago at discount tire. Love the tires until the freeway when I have an unbelievable shake. 3 balances, 2 of them being forced road balanced and still having the same issues. I love the tires but what do I do? I had them once again balanced this morning and checked after a 5 mile test drive and all 4 were already out if balance. Is anyone else having these issues or know where I should go from here?

Re: Fed up!

Could be out of round tires, I had a set of out of tires from discount tires they got me a new set that fitted the problem.

I've had no problems of the sort with my Zeons. Go back where you bought them and get a new set...one or more must be out of round.

strange that all 4 tires go out of balance after a 5 mile drive. I recall balancing beads that is installed inside of tires that automatically gravitates to the area that is out of balance. I will search around and see if I can find info on it.

Re: Fed up!

I also think you have at least one tire that is out of round.

Too often, tires get blamed for an out of balance problem when it's actually the wheels or a tech that doesn't really know how to balance tires/wheels combos.
